Need to replace the power supply and choose short card like Zotac Mini or EVGA one fan version.

Well, he can, if he wants either a computer not working, or hardware damage and a broken computer.

If you have room for it inside the case then it's fine.
But you need to swap out that 300W PSU for sure, Gigabyte G1 GTX 1060 needs one 8-pin (or 6+2 pin) PCI-E power cable from PSU. Generic 300W PSU doesnt have PCI-E power cables for graphics cards and also it doesnt have enough watts and amps to run this card.

Here is how the inside of that Dell PC Case is:

Best bet is getting a better ATX Case so you have proper airflow, room for Case Fans as needed. And you'll need a decent ATX Power Supply (like 500W+ Bronze, minimum) with the proper PCIE power connections.
